MANAGING SMALL BUSINESS GROWING PAINS

BUILDING RESILIENCE

This workshop forms part of a series of seven workshops designed to reorientate your thinking, re-energise your outlook and encourage fresh ideas.Together the workshops provide strategies, tips and support to re-orientate your thinking, re-energise your outlook and capture fresh ideas that will boost your capacity to run a successful business.
